Nikwax BASE Wash 5L

SKU NWX145 Category Brand:

BaseWash® effectively cleans, deodorises, inhibits the build up of body odours, accelerates drying and improves cooling efficiency of synthetic base layers. Why technical base layer fabrics dry quickly and cool you down… Synthetic base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. The fabrics used are highly wicking.

For best results make sure you use the correct product.
Nikwax BaseWash® has been specifically formulated for use when cleaning and conditioning synthetic base layers. If you have woollen base layers make sure you use Nikwax Wool Wash™ for best results.

WHY YOU SHOULD USE IT:

Synthetic base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. The fabrics used are highly wicking (they will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for base layers. Synthetic base layers are fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but over time a build up of bacteria and body oils can lead to them smelling. To keep synthetic base layers functioning properly, care must be taken when washing. Using conventional household detergents or fabric conditioners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric. Additionally, odours will not be adequately removed, instead they are masked by perfumes which will fail quickly, leaving you with smelly base layers.

WHEN YOU SHOULD USE IT:

Using conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners will impair the wicking properties of base layer fabrics. Standard household detergents do not stop odours from building up in the fabric when in use. Conventional fabric conditioners leave water-hating (hydrophobic) residues that will reduce the performance of the fabric, preventing it from spreading moisture and working to its maximum potential.
Nikwax BaseWash® outperforms conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners at improving wicking, accelerating drying, and removing and preventing odour build up.

HOW YOU SHOULD USE IT:

  • Nikwax BaseWash® is easy to use as it cleans and conditions at the same time.
  • Nikwax BaseWash® refreshes your synthetic base layers by deodorising and maintains freshness by preventing odour build up when in use.
  • Nikwax BaseWash® also enhances and revitalises the wicking properties of synthetic base layers and increases breathability. This helps the fabric to spread sweat, dry quickly, and keep you more comfortable in all conditions.
  • Nikwax BaseWash® outperforms household detergents and fabric conditioners at improving wicking, accelerating drying, and removing and preventing odour.
